Edexcel O Level Bengali


This syllabus provides a framework for the development of effective language learning and authentic use of the target language in defined, contemporary contexts. It offers positive and appropriate assessment for learners of modem languages. It combines an emphasis on written communication and transmission skills with reward for practical application of the target language structures and grammar.

A list of defined topics has been produced to provide a clear focus for study. These topics relate to the target language country. It should also be noted that not all of the listed topics will feature in every examination paper. The topics will be rotated over the years.
